Amazing camp for kids. My daughter loved her entire week and built confidence and skills up in her skateboarding. The staff was professional and prompt to deal with and the counsellors were full of energy and tons of fun for the kids. My daughter asked after the first day if she could back next year. I would highly recommend this camp – we had an amazing experience
What are 2 or 3 highlights of your camp, something the kids will talk about long after camp is over.
The progression campers make in just one week is usually the number one thing campers and parents talk out. Our sessions provide campers not only with a fun and safe atmosphere to learn but it also creates a feeling of self accomplishment and confidence boost for many. We have been making kids happy since 2006.
My daughter loved her skateboarding lessons. Instructor gave her the right support and assistance but most of all, she had a blast! Definitely recommend Evolve to everyone!
What will kids learn at your camp?
Kids will learn how to skateboard or scooter. They will learn proper safety techniques, progression steps, goal setting and self confidence. Among many other things.
What kind of feedback have your received about your camp?
Best summer camp I have ever been to!!! So much fun, with supportive coaches, and a great environment. This is by far a summer camp I would go to again, and if I could, I would give it 6/5 stars.Jesse Downs
